About
In 2016, a life-sized model of an orca was erected in the center of Grundarfjörður in Paimpol Park. This piece of art by Unnsteinn Guðmundsson is modeled after a special male orca named “Thunderstorm” that often visits the Snæfellsnes peninsula with his family. Snæfellsnes is the only area in Iceland where orcas are seen regularly and this sculpture shall raise awareness of these fascinating animals.

A wonderful piece of outdoor art in Snaefellsnes
Mar. 2020
This orca sculpture is a wonderful piece of outdoor art. It is a life-sized model of a special male orca named “Thunderstorm”.

I visited this sculpture with my son after we went on a whale watching tour in Grundarfjördur where we saw a group of orcas.

It was very educational to stand next to this orca and to get a true feeling about the size of those amazing animals.
